DEAR SANTA – Annapolis District Drama Group
Dec 3 @ 2:00 pm

The Annapolis District Drama Group, under the direction of Wayne Currie, presents Norm Foster’s DEAR SANTA just in time for Christmas. For audiences of all ages.

North Pole Trouble is Brewing at King’s Theatre
The Annapolis District Drama Group (ADDG) presents Dear Santa written by Norm Foster on December 1, 2 and 3, at Kings Theatre in Annapolis Royal.  It is directed by Wayne Currie who is no stranger to Kings Theatre.  Wayne has been involved in the Drama Group and with King’s Shorts for many years as an actor, a writer and a director. As well, Jane DeWolfe will be Stage Managing and Brian Dickinson will be the Music Director, both of whom are long time stalwarts with the Drama Group. The enthusiasm in rehearsals is amazing and the cast is working (and laughing) incredibly hard to provide quality Christmas cheer to the community.  
Trouble is brewing at the North Pole this year as Santa has to deal with a stowaway on the North Pole Special supply train, and a workshop faced with a shortage of glue, required to build the Christmas Toys. As well, strained relationships within Santa’s staff, mischievous elves and a sleazy sleigh salesman add to the confusing mix. Santa and his dedicated workers, however, do their best to make sure that Christmas Day will once again be the magical occasion that children of all ages dream about. This is a story that is filled with fun, laughter, music, heartache and good old-fashioned Christmas spirit.
After stowing away on the supply train to the North Pole, a young girl from Annapolis Royal, Kit Bishop (Nina Habinski), shows up to confront Santa (Miles Leahy) with a letter from her younger sister Michel (Lily Habinsky). She is found and taken to Santa by Santa’s Russian maintenance man, Bozidar (Sam Cooper). Santa’s Chief of Staff, Algernon (Brian Rice), is incensed and wants to send her home immediately. Meanwhile, Santa’s housekeeper, Octavia (Eloise Mailman), struggles in her ditzy and inept way to keep things at the Pole neat and tidy, while concealing her admiration for Algernon. At the same time, a sleazy sleigh salesman, Lou Flapdoodle (Simon Bonnington) contributes to the chaos by trying to sell a new, modern rocket-powered sleigh to our jolly hero.
Add to all of that a mix of seven hyper-active and interfering elves (Karen Tomasino, Colleen Rowland, Donnie Carter, Alex Hancock, Linda Hulme Leahy, Haley Beatty and Rachael Cheechoo) and a visit to the Pole by Kit’s mother (Shelley Habinski) and it promises to be an extremely entertaining performance.

    DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER – Annapolis District Drama Group
    Apr 27 @ 7:30 pm

    When Jacqueline announces she is off for to visit her mother, an ideal opportunity presents itself for her husband Bernard to inveigle his chic, Parisian mistress Suzanne into their country cottage for the weekend. Why not invite along his best friend Robert too, as an alibi? And to make the arrangements easier, he’s hired a Cordon Bleu cook to rustle up the necessary gourmet delights.

    The cook? Ah, that’ll be street-wise Suzette. And her jealous husband, George? Well, he’s a BIG fella! And did we mention that elegant Jacqueline is having a torrid secret affair with the rakish Robert?

    Throw in a dash of Chanel and a glug or two of Cointreau – the stage is set for a hilarious, fast moving farcical romp of mistaken identities, illicit trysts, quick-thinking improvisations, bribery and seduction, as the plans for passion turn into a nuptial nightmare!

    REBECCA PERRY’S Confessions of a Redheaded Coffee Shop Girl
    May 13 @ 2:00 pm

    Anthropology graduate Joanie Little is stuck working as a barista. Rather than let this get her down, she decides to make the most of her “underemployment”. So, much like Jane Goodall did with chimpanzees, this upbeat Miss studies her only available subjects: the eccentric customers of her coffee shop ‘jungle’. Hilarity ensues, with jazzy tunes, co-worker showdowns, life lessons and even a bit of romance. Created and developed by Toronto’s critically acclaimed solo performer, Rebecca Perry, Joanie Little brews up a comedic storm that you won’t want to miss! Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl is the internationally successful show for anyone who has ever had a job they didn’t like.

    • “Impeccable comic timing and faultless delivery. Perry is an animated and engaging performer.” – ★★★★★ – The Nouse UK
    • “Clever, amusing and wonderfully executed… I would highly recommend you see it.” – Arts Award Voice
    • “Her comedic timing is spot on, her acting is superb as she slips in and out of characters, and her singing is pitch perfect. The description for the show says that it’s suitable for ages 9-99 and I think that’s true.” – Mooney on Theatre
    • “Loved every minute of Rebecca Perry’s “Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl.” What a talented, generous artist. And, what pipes! Even bought the CD.” – NNNN – Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine
    • This is solo show performance at its best, with Perry rolling out a cast of characters in Joanie’s world like a wild kingdom field guide. I dare you not to fall in love with Joanie Little – and, by extension, Rebecca Perry.” – Life With More Cowbell

    Sold out in more than 20 cities internationally!

    XARA Choral Theatre: RISE
    Jun 3 @ 2:00 pm

    Xara Choral Theatre is breaking the boundaries of choral performance. Weaving together contemporary choral singing, movement, lighting, and spoken word, their breakthrough performances tell stories that are transformative for audiences and performers alike.

     

    XARA CHORAL THEATRE invites you to celebrate ten years of choral innovation and the fiercely talented performers who have helped them make their mark, along with the stories that have inspired the work.

    RISE is a collection of four short pieces of choral theatre. Each explores what it means to be a woman searching for agency and fighting for change while trying to honour her elders and her past. 

    The ensemble will be joined by Xara alumnae, several young singers from our Chrysalis Youth Mentorship program, and guest artists Rebecca Thomas, and Michelle Raine. Each section of the show has been collaboratively developed with the featured artist and will include a re-imagined Greek myth, slam poetry, and vulnerable monologue. Music will vary from new works by Canadians Don Macdonald and Kim Baryluk to music by Finnish, Tamilian, and African-American composers.

    The narratives that come alive through this show celebrate, affirm, challenge, and mourn the unique roles women play in our culture. It may leave you with new perspectives on the many ways of being a woman, a protector, and a bearer of history.
